About Shelter to Soldier:
Shelter to Soldier is a CA 501c3 nonprofit organization that rescues dogs from an otherwise uncertain future in local shelters and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or other injuries associated with traumatic service experiences. Every day, 22 US veterans and 1 active duty service member are lost to suicide. That’s an average of one life lost every 63 minutes. PTSD is a major problem for our men and women in uniform, and its effects last far and beyond the battlefield. Shelter to Soldier’s expertise in training service dogs is unmatched in the field and provides a great platform for them to use these talents to serve our military personnel in honor of their service to our country. The sponsored service dogs serve the critical role of psychological support to his/her veteran handler.
